One of the sassy "getting to know you" questions on a person's Yelp profile page is "My Last Meal on Earth." I love this question. What in the world would I choose to eat, if I knew I was never going to eat again (on Earth, anyway) and I had no restrictions whatsoever?
On my Yelp profile, I said I'd have omakase prepared by Masaharu Morimoto. You kind of can't go wrong with that, although there are probably better sushi chefs out there. Just none whose names I know.
I know one thing - I would really, really want uni to be on the menu. Eating uni is such a visceral experience for me...the kind of food you feel all the way down to your toes if you're doing it right. Its creamy texture fills your senses with the hint of the sea and, if served as nigiri, the slight chewiness of the nori gives your teeth a little something to work on, reminding you that you are, indeed, still on earth, as opposed to ascended to some other plane. They say uni is an aphrodisiac, to which I dreamily reply, "mmm hmmmm."
And you? What would you include in your last meal?
